Brave Julianne Moore bravely accepts Golden Globe for brave parody of Palin
The Daily Caller ^ | January 14, 2013 | Jim Treacher

Posted on 01/14/2013 12:52:22 PM PST by EveningStar

... Julianne Moore won an award for playing Sarah Palin in Game Change, because of course she did. And then, apparently, the director of the movie was gushing about how “brave” she was for doing that. That’s right: Daring to depict Sarah Palin in an unflattering light is an act of bravery. In Hollywood.

I'm sick and tired of people in Hollywood patting themselves on the back for being brave and courageous over one issue of another. These people aren't brave. They're cowards and egomaniacs

In the words of Dennis Prager, "There is no courage in Hollywood!"

The entire Golden Globes last night was an Obama For America rally..from Bill Clinton getting a standing ovation to the constant Palin bashing..hey I guess being “Brave” in Hollyweird means being an a-hole which is what Julianne Moore is..the quote that Sarah Palin says rings true today “May we be happy and may our enemies know it” Hollywood libs are miserable human beings who lead miserable lives..their jealousy of Sarah Palin and what she represents shows every day

Everyone knows that Sarah owns at least one gun. Clearly, Julianne Moore took her life in her hands by risking the wrath of a crazy gun-toting Republican. You never know what those people will do!

I wonder if it could be considered brave by Hollywood standards if you open your mouth and spit out stupid drivel. On the other hand if you may be too stupid to realize you are saying something stupid so therefore you are not brave in saying it. Either way they are covered and can pat themselves on the back.

Wow such “bravery” to sing in the same liberal choir. Boy, I tell ya', that's real bravery. Most everyone understands that these people are nothing but hollow cowards who merely prop each other up in their empty lives.

The sole purpose of the night was to promote communism to the masses. They are too ignorant to understand what happens to dissidents under communism, they get treated like Palin.

Folks; these are miserable human beings masquerading as happy people. They do not understand the Light, and therefore hate it. They congratulate themselves to make themselves feel better, but they have a God sized hole in their hearts.

The physicality of Julianne Moore playing Sarah Palin is not unlike casting Cedric the Entertainer as RG III.

Did anyone happen to hear how Julianne Moore ended her acceptance speech?

She said, 'And a shout out to Tina Fey and Katie Kouric, who changed the 2008 election'.

I would love to have been able to slap her.

That’s like the Dixie Chicks calling themselves “brave” for criticizing GWB in Europe in front of an anti-American audience that cheered and applauded them! If Hollywood types really want to be “brave,” why don’t they come out against abortion, illegal immigration, or gun control?

Vapid idiots.

“I would love to have been able to slap her.”

And I mean, a “reaching back, cheek busting, head-smashing-the-bar-follow-through kind of Rick James slap that makes the whole place go quiet for about 30 seconds to see if she gets up off the floor under her own power” kind of slap.....

Yeah... that kind. Mmmm....

Equal rights for women is a big thing with me. And that includes equal-rights-slapping feminist bigots who fist-pump-celebrate fascist propagandists like Tina Fey.

Brave??? For what, the sheer daringness of again trashing Palin for the five-hundred thousandth time in the media? Like it’s some kind of rare and courageous thing to do? Oh, yeah, like it’s really going to ruffle the feathers of their audience? The same media elites who’ve never stopped the endless crusade to smear Palin’s character with outright vicious lies, accuse her of complicity in mass murder in Tucson, make rape jokes concerning her underage daughter, and then spend millions right here on a film to portray her as a mentally-unbalanced dingbat?

Orwellian. Truly Orwellian. No other word describes it.

Yeah, they are brave the way Leni Riefenstahl was brave in the 1930s, to make an apt analogy.

Bravely standing and reading the words written for them, even though everyone else they run with is identically goodthinkful. Their are some real profiles in courage in Hollywood. They should have medals ceremonies ...
Oh, they do? Yeah I guess that’s right—the Oscars, Golden Globes, etc.: Mutual admiration/Back-slapping societies. (Black-sapping?)
OK. I propose we send our bitter clingers `Blowtorch battalion’ through Hollyweird first. No prisoners.

Nah. Leni Riefenstahl was talented and her films were ground breaking and breathtaking - no matter what her loving lenses captured. These idiots are nothing more than (especially the women) photogenic body parts du jour.

Did she now? You know, that pretty much shows their bias in a public and quotable way. Thanks for letting us know about this slip of Julianne Moore's filthy tongue.

Brave? Tina Fey did it for weeks on end. She even did it on an episode hosting by Sarah Palin herself!. And Fey wasn't even part of the cast any more at that time!

They have to keep saying "brave" and "courageous" because this was one of the most cowardly productions in years.

They could have dramatized the whole book -- the sections about Hillary and Barack and the damning section about John Edwards.

Instead they chose to focus narrowly on Palin because she was an easy target: nobody who mattered was going to complain.

And of course, Julie Anne got the award, because there aren't that many "mini-series" or made for television movies any more.

The category is a relic of an earlier era when "movies of the week" and "network television events" abounded.

Now it's an easy win for the few stars or programs available.

According to IMDB, yes. She also played the role of an incestuous mother in Savage Grace that defies all boundaries of the R rating. The closer one looks at JM's body of movie work, the less attractive she becomes as a person and as an actress.
